Over hundreds of years, humans have discovered which plants have beneficial value, which may be used as food, and which should be avoided. This vital information has been recorded in ancient herbal manuscripts and passed on by word of mouth from generation to generation.
Today, many people are excited to rediscover the fascinating history of herbs, and drinking traditional herbal teas is one way that people can reconnect with the past and appreciate just how much nature has to offer.
Herb teas do not contain true tea leaves, but the carefully selected flowers, berries, bark, seeds, leaves and roots of selected herbal plants, specially chosen for their natural benefits. Using herbs to care for yourself and your family is an empowering experience, enabling you to tap into the power of nature.
Herbal teas are best stored below 30°C, away from direct sunlight and in a dry environment.
Infuse one heaped teaspoon with one cup of boiling water, steep for 5 minutes and strain before drinking.
If not using the tea straight away, you can store it in a covered jug or container in the fridge for up to 24 hours and gently warm the mixture before drinking.
